Though the point of Google edition is you can unlock the bootloader and easy install custom roms so if stock don't have it you can flash a framework mod with transparent lockscreen. If you aren't planning to root then I don't think it's necessary to get the Google play edition imo.

You don't need to root to get a transparency in the launcher. You just need a launcher that supports transparency like Nova Launcher. Also, the lock screen should have a transparent status bars by default.

Are you rooted? Do YOU want stock launcher with transparency, and stock wallpapers? Own a GPe? Replace the file in system/priv-app with this https://www.dropbox.com/s/xco9j32o19eidqx/launcher2.apk made this for Nexus 4 but I figured it'll work on anything

Or just use the Launcher2 from Moto's 4.4 update which has transparency.

Ill have to see when it arrives, my question is because when my nexus 4 got kitkat update, the laucher had black bars as well as lockscreen which was expected, I changed to Google Launcher and the homescreen was transparent as promised but It did not affect lockscreen when it came to that and I wondered if it was the same thing here.

Ill find out Monday thanks all who helped

One thing that bothers me is that in the GPE it is written that FM radio not included.
Is this SW related or is this missing in the HW.
If it's hardware the this is a different version and Rom.
If it's software then how can this work. Loading a clean rom from the Europe versions?

Can somebody test this?
